Packet Card Tricks
B'Wave - Max MavenAn Ultra-Simple Approach To The Packet Brainwave Effect. No Sleights - No Rough & Smooth
The magician puts a packet of cards on the table. He says to the spectator, "Let's play a game of imagination. Imagine that these are the four Queens." He pantomimes plucking a card with each hand from the packet. "Imagine that I have removed two of the Queens. Do you think they are the black ones or the red ones?" The spectator says, for example, red. "That's amazing - you're correct!" says the magician. "Now, I will turn one of these Queens face up."
He pantomimes turning one card over, then putting the imaginary card back into the packet. He then says, "Which red Queen do you think I turned over, the heart or the diamond?" The spectator says, for example, diamond. "That's amazing - you're correct again!" says the magician. "Of course, if it's really true, then the Queen of Diamons must be reversed in the packet. Let's see..." He spreads the cards. One is face up. It is the Queen of Diamonds.
"I want to be sure you understand that this magic was accomplished by imagination, not by sleight-of-hand. Therefore, I used a Queen of Diamonds with a different back." He turns over the Queen of Diamonds, showing that it has a contrasting back color!
"Also, because I knew you would pick the Queen of Diamonds, it was not necessary to use any printing on the faces of the other cards." He turns over the three face-down cards, revealing that their faces are blank!
Comes complete with special
cards and instructions.
The Gordon Diary - Paul Gordon
A regular diary is shown to contain names of playing cards on all 365(6) dates. A chosen card is found to match the entry in the diary of a FREELY nominated date made BEFORE the card was chosen. NO duplicates, NO set-ups, NO memorized deck, NO KIDDING! It's a real fooler!
A spectator names any date
while mixing a borrowed deck. A card is selected and placed face-down on the
table. The spectator looks up his or her date in a small, pocket diary. The
card printed on the chosen date is read aloud, then the tabled selection is
turned over and they match! The Gordon Diary is being called the best version
by the pros! No stacked deck, no switches, any deck can be used! The diary is
shirt-pocket sized, so it can be carried with you any time. It has an innocent
look, with a leather-like textured cover stock. The dates are already printed
in the diary for you. That s all you need! The deck can be borrowed
"The BEST version ever!" - Phil Willmarth (Linking Ring)
"A SUPERB solution!" - Jamy Ian Swiss (Genii)
"Excellent, Paul. Excellent!" - Aldo Colombini
"Possibly the ONLY impromptu diary!" - Roger Crosthwaite
NOTE this is the original
release not the new version with dvd.
Four earth cards are shown. One at a time, alien cards appear and earth cards vanish. Aliens are taking over the world!
Next, the alien cards change into Green Alien Immigration cards so they can enter earth.
For the final climax all the cards change into frightening images of the Roswell Alien Autopsy incident. This is definitely a unique trick for the modern age.
Based on Jim Pace's Alien Autopsy. This is a fabulous packet trick.
Its different, fun to do,
very easy AND... Resets with the but the move of a card.
One of my favorites.
Sign Off Card Trick - Tony Clark and Austin Brook
The Magician has a card selected, signed and shuffled back into the deck. A jumbo card is laying face down on the table. The magician asks the spectator if they would be amazed if their selected card is on the other side of the jumbo card. When he turns the jumbo card over there are twenty four mini cards printed on the face. On closer inspection, the spectator is amazed to see one of the cards is their selected card and it has a signature on it! "Look I can even pull the signed card off." The magician says as he begins to pull the card off we see it visibly change into their original signed card. When the magician reveals the face of the jumbo card the spectator sees a blank space where their card used to be.
THE TRICK WILL BLOW YOUR AUDIENCE AWAY!
Includes: The Jumbo Prediction Card 2 Gimmicks Plus a DVD DVD Includes: Full performance and explanation by Tony Clark and Austin Brook; Plus 2 BONUS sections. Running Time Approximately 40min.
Size Surprise - Toyohisa Saikawa / Ton Onosaka
this very visual close-up effect, the performer displays five cards: the Ace
through Five of Clubs.
The spectator is asked to state which is the largest card.
Of course, the answer is "five" - but suddenly, the cards all change to different sizes: the Ace becomes a jumbo card, and the others are progressively smaller - with the Five as the tiniest one!
Four jumbo Five of Diamonds are shown by counting them faces upwards. One card is turned face down, showing a regular back. The other three cards magically turn face down, showing regular backs. One card is turned face up and the other three cards magically turn faces up, as well.
Now for the spectacular climax. The performer now shows that each card has a different and brightly colored back-the regular backs have vanished!
The faces can once again be shown and, if you desire, you can turn the bright color backs into regular backs and end just as you began.
Fits in your jacket pocket. Great for Close Up Table Hopping or on a large Stage!
Ghost Box By Mark Mason (JB Magic)
There are dozens of different effects that can be performed with this box. 2 cards are selected from a deck, one is placed face down in the centre of the deck the other is placed inside the ghost box. A snap of the fingers the cards change places. You can even sign the back of the selection and the signature will also transpose.
Any card is selected from
a regular deck, signed and returned. The cards are replaced back in the case.
Slowly the flap of the case opens and one card rises out of the deck, its the
Imagine being able to show a card box EMPTY. But at anytime you can reach inside the box and remove a playing card, business card etc.
Comes with special box, gimmick card and several routines and ideas.
This is truly the ultimate "Wild Card" routine. No table, or spectators hands. It all happens right there in YOUR hands. Perfect for table hopping, walk around any closeup situation. AND, when you have finished its reset and ready to go again. Based around Steve Hamiltons in the hand wild card with my own changes and improvements.
This time however the story is based around a village where its occupants disappear one by one "Court Cards go BLANK"
Very visual, lots of different styles of changes.
Here is my friend Zak Stone performing his routine Here
Or me... Here
You will use this!
Curse by Peter
One of the all time greats in packet tricks.
Seven ancient playing cards are shown to be six black spot cards and one king of diamonds.
The performer divides the seven cards and asks the spectators to wager as to which group contains the diamond. He tells the story of an elderly gypsy woman having wagered and lost placing a curse upon the cards.
When the magician next attempted to operate his game he found that all the cards are winners. The cards are fanned to show all the faces are king of diamonds and all the backs as normal.
This has become a real classic.
One of my personal favorites. I promise you'll love this!
Vampire Card Trick - Vincenzo Di Fatta
The magician shows 4 cards: one figure (the vampire) and three numbered cards (the victims). The vampire is placed on one victim and he sucks his blood, leaving the card blank. This is repeated until all three cards are turned blank. To finish even the vampire disappears and his card will turn blank.
to do lots of pictures and very comprehensive instructions. I thought this was
just going to be another cheap packet trick. But very pleasantly suprized to find
it was a great little trick that I rather like!
From the man who brought you Fresh Mint, Snapped and 'Loophole' comes Out of Order - a dynamite packet trick that cannot fail to amaze! Out of Order delivers three distinct climaxes, each more impossible than the last and, when the trick is over, every card can be FULLY EXAMINED!
Explaining that magicians go through a LOT of playing cards you display a packet of special printer cards - blank on both sides - that you explain can be used to print new cards. Two selections are made from an ordinary pack, lets say the Jack of Hearts and the Ten of Spades. You continue, ...so, if I wanted to make a copy of the Jack of Hearts, all I do is rub it on the printer cards and..., one by one you print three perfect duplicates of the Jack of Hearts! Turning your attention to the second selection, you attempt to print a few duplicate Ten of Spades but nothing seems to be happening. Its now that you realise that some of your printer cards are actually out of order. The blanks are turned over to reveal large OUT OF ORDER signs on the back! Undeterred you soldier on and, for a finale, proceed to print three duplicate Ten of Spades right on the backs of the three Jack of Hearts you printed earlier!
Out of Order is totally customisable to any presentation you can think of. Instead of Out of Order the cards might deliver a humourous message or be emblazoned with the name of your corporate client. The Out of Order DVD will guide you step by step through every detail of the handling and includes a second bonus effect that also makes use of the enclosed gaff cards. THE PACKET TRICK IS BACK AND THERE ARE VERY FEW BETTER THAN CAMERON FRANCIS
Last one only £8
At last after more years than I care to remember, finally released... My personal masterpiece!
The Master of Escape and Disguise the Scarlet Pimpernel escapes time and time again!
Exchanging places with his guards and finally vanishing completely.
A great great card trick, great story! So I'm a little biased.
The performer explains that he has a new computer program that allows him to win every time in poker without even using a computer. The performer then shows a CD that has ten face cards printed on one side, and card backs on the other. The performer hands a spectator five paper clips and the CD explaining that the spectator will pick out the performer's hand by clipping any five facedown cards and the remaining cards will be the spectator's hand. The performer then asks the spectator to turn the CD face up showing the five clipped cards to be the winning hand!!
From a packet of 12 cards the Magician deals 6 cards to the spectator and keeps 6 for themself. Both the Spectator and the Magician place their cards behind their backs, mix them up and remove one card. Keeping it face down so even they don't know which card they have chosen, the Magician and spectator exchange cards and place them face up within the packet of cards behind their backs. When the two packets are brought forward and fanned out it is seen that both the face up "chosen" cards are identical The spectators start to believe that maybe all the cards are the same!!! "Well, all of these other cards may be the same " you say "but " You turn over all the other cards to reveal that all the cards are all the same but a totally different card!
With the aid of an "Invisible Die" a spectator chooses one of six cards.
The magician reveals his prediction, It does of course match !
This is incredibly clean. No funny spelling business, they throw / choose, a number you count to that card.
Very, Very clean.
Very simple. Resets instantly and perfect for table hopping with an in the hands routine included. This one is a must so simple but it blows them away every time.
Colour Change Monte
While demonstrating the "Three Card Monte" The Monte card reverses itself and changes places with the other cards not once but several times.
Then the backs change colour one by one !
Great routine, easy to do with a big impact ! Resets itself, perfect for table hopping.
Based on Matt Corins Mondo Monte.
the best "Packet Trick" in the world, EVER !
Wow ! It had better be good after that Following an entertaining patter story about the "Three Card Monte", you show three cards (Sorry that was rather obvious wasn't it). Two have a red diamond printed on them and the third has a blue diamond on it. First you try to find the 'blue' card but they've all turned red, next they all turn blue then back to red again. Finally in desperation you turn over the cards on at a time One red, one blue, now if you can tell me what the last one is POW ! The punch finish that'll knock em dead. I'll not give it away but it's a killer. Not self working but not difficult to learn. Made in Bicycle Cards, with carry case. You WILL use this, today, tomorrow and the rest of your life
